My Commitment

I am a North Carolina native raised by a family of bikers. As a child I started out riding a little Honda XR80, but in my mind it was just as cool as my dad’s Wide Glide. He was a police officer in my hometown of Durham and that exposure to the law and motorcycles led me down the path of doing what I do now. After attending Appalachian State where I graduated with honors, I entered The University of North Carolina School of Law. After graduating and meeting Bob I realized that his practice was my true calling; representing injured bikers. It’s not easy for bikers these days, but we intend to level the playing field for the bike community.

I practice law with the belief that people should be treated fairly. The little guy gets taken advantage of far too often, so I work to turn the tables. A fellow biker will be the last one to get cheated on our watch, as we truly care about our clients and will fight for their rights.

Having the opportunity to dedicate my career to helping such good people is a dream come true. There is something very distinct about being on a motorcycle – something that has to be experienced to be understood. It’s my goal to get my clients back to doing what they love.

Be safe and have fun out there!
